Train journey in India is considered best medium of travel because of comfort and affordability. More than 20 million passengers travel by train in a year in India. Indian Railways under Ministry of Railways of Govt of India is the responsible authority for railway transport in India. It has 7500 railway stations across the length and breadth of the country.


The length of Indian Railway Network is 65000 Km to connect 16 Railway Zones, these are- Central Railway, East Central Railway, East Coast Railway, Eastern Railway, North Central Railway, North Eastern Railway, North Western Railway, North East Frontier Railway, Northern Railway, South Central Railway, South East Central Railway, South Eastern Railway, South Western Railway, Southern Railway, West Central Railway and Western Railway.

Anyone can travel in Indian Railway Trains with a valid ticket reserved or unreserved. A train ticket one can purchase from Railway ticket counter or a licensed ticket booking agent which cost little high than the ticket cost itself. Indian Rail Tickets can also be ordered online as e-Ticekt or i-Ticket using internet and payment can be made via credit card, debit card or net banking.

Purchasing a rail ticket online from Indian Railways www.indianrail.gov.in is as safe as purchasing any other commodity from eBay or Amazon or making online transactions. However customers interested in buying Indian Rail Ticket online are advised to refrain from using public computers like a computer of a Cyber Café for purchasing ticket and making payment online. A laptop or PC with a reliable net connection is safest choice in this regard.

One can travel in anyone of the following categories of trains in India-

  • Duronto Extress- These are non-stop trains which originates at source and stop at final destination except for operational purposes in between.
  • Rajdhani Express- These stops at only few stations between source and destination.
  • Shatabdi Express – These are intercity seater-type trains for day time journey.
  • Garib Rath- These targets to Indian middle class and poor class who can not afford a train journey in AC compartment. These are fully AC trains.
  • Sampark Kranti Express – These trains connects different Indian states to India’s capital New Delhi
  • Super Fast Express / Mail – Ticket charge for these trains is little high from common type trains. These runs at an average speed of 55 Kmph
  • Express – These are most common types of trains under Indian Railways and stops in all important stations throughout journey.
  • Passenger and Fast Passenger- These train stops at all stations through journey. Reserved accommodation is not available in these trains except few.
  • Suburban Trains- These train runs in urban areas and offer only unreserved seating accommodation.
  • Metro and Monorails – These trains makes the part of city transport.

Indian Railways runs nearly 10000 trains per day, however, getting an accommodation in Indian railway trains is quite challenging. If you are planning to make a train journey for a long distance, please book your ticket well in advance. You can travel in an Indian railway train under various accommodation classes. Following accommodation categories are available at present-

1A- First Class AC; 2A- AC 2-Tier; FC- First Class; 3A- AC 3Tier; 3E-AC 3Tier Economy; CC: AC Chair Car; EC: Executive Class Chair Car; SL: Sleeper Class; 
2S: Seater Class; UA: Unreserved

Of the above mentioned travel categories 1A is most expensive and suits for high budget passengers. While travel in UA: Unreserved Category do not require advance ticket booking and travel ticket can be purchased before boarding the train on the platform ticket window, it makes the cheapest train travel.

Loads of passengers opting to travel in Indian trains are high. When you book a ticket it’s not always necessary that you may get confirmed accommodation instantly, no matter how many days in advance you are booking a ticket. Chances are always that you may get a waiting ticket in queue. This means if a confirmed ticket passenger cancels a ticket before journey for the same train then passenger in wait will automatically be placed on those vacant accommodations. Normally the waiting ticket passenger gets confirmed accommodation by the time of train journey.

For the passengers who get a waiting accommodation it is important to know what are their chances of getting a confirmed accommodation by the date of train journey; this is when PNR i.e. Passenger Name Record comes to your help. PNR tells you what is your accommodation status and how near you are to get a confirmed accommodation by the date and time of journey. You can find PNR which are numeric digits in top left corner of your train ticket, if you have already booked one

Now when you have PNR, you can call to Indian Railways Enquiry to know your status or can check it online yourself round the clock.

Check PNR Status Online, No Phone Call Required.

10 rules of good parenting

The term parenting sends a shiver down the spine  especially if you live in a nuclear family and going to become a parent; father, mother or guardian.

Excellence vs Perfection

There is huge confusion between excellence and perfection. Both are rewarding but...
Perfection has limitations, you can not make anything perfect above 100 marks. This is where either you beat the competition or get beaten. Normally both happens. Excellence is about achieving 100%. You can achieve 100 marks in a given task at that point you may argue that here I achieved full percentage. But analogy says, you have achieved it about the task and not around the task. When you strive to achieve around the task there is no upper limit. For example an student may get 100 out of 100 marks in a given examination does that mean he / she 100 perfect in all those topics around what questions were asked or as that employ that there is no one out there in the world who knows better than the student who have faced an examination. This is why governments take Essay test before selecting you for a given post.
In companies awards are given to best employees do you know why? So other employees try b…

Internet Cafe
